UPDATE AT 5:05 P.M. (WZZM) -- Kent County investigators say they were talking to a father by phone for hours before they asked for an Amber Alert for the children they believed he had in his custody.

Undersheriff Jon Hess says deputies found out about the missing boys around 9 a.m. Monday, when they were called by the children's mother.

Hess says deputies were able to get in phone contact with Erick Danielson soon after talking with the mother.  They spoke to him for hours, but around 1 p.m. -- when the tone of the conversations between Danielson, the boys' mother, and deputies changed -- detectives asked for the issuance of an Amber Alert.

Kent County canceled the Amber Alert at 3:10 p.m., shortly after deputies found the children safe and in the care of relatives.  Danielson was taken into custody on Fruit Ridge Avenue north of 4 Mile Rd. in Kent County's Alpine Township.

Hess says Danielson will undergo a medical evaluation, but is not facing charges at this time.

UPDATE: 4:00PM - The Kent County Sheriff's Department says that Logan and Jaden Danielson have been found safe at a relative's home.

Erick Norman Danielson is in custody.

We'll have more details on WZZM 13 News at 5:30pm.

UPDATE: 3:40PM - The Kent County Sheriff's Department says that the Amber Alert is being canceled.

WZZM 13's Jon Mills reports that crews searching the Muskegon/Oceana County line have been leaving the scene to head to Muskegon Township.

We'll have more details when they become available.
